Ruprecht von Kaufmann
Ruprecht von Kaufmann (Munich, 1974). Von Kaufmann’s powerful, emotionally charged paintings have something intentionally disturbing about them. In works that often present a dream-like atmosphere, the artist emphasizes the narrative dimension, evoking situations on the edge where we cannot tell what is going to happen next. They also contain elements that hint at dark humor and dense melancholy. He has exhibited extensively, with shows at the Kunsthalle Erfurt, the United Nations headquarters in New York, the Museem Böttcherstrasse in Bremen and the Georg Kolbe Museum in Berlin, and the Kunstlaboratorium in Vestfossen, Norway. In Italy his work appeared in the exhibition Le Nuove Frontiere della Pittura at the Stelline Foundation (Milan, 2018).
